the vodka sauce was incredibly watered down
there weren't a lot of pieces of green and yellow zucchini

I know it says the ravioli is lobster, but it's more of a generic seafood taste, and not really a good one at that. The seafood taste is coming from lobster puree (lobster claw meat, corn starch, canola oil), lobster base {lobster meat, salt, maltodextrin, autolyzed yeast extract, dried potato, corn oil, flavoring and space (paprika) extractive}, natural lobster flavor {yeast extract, maltodextrin, lobster meat, shrimp powder, pollock powder, whey powder, cream powder (cream, non fat milk, soy lecithin), salt, tapioca maltodextrin, potato maltodextrin, natural flavoring}.

What's pollock?
What's maltodextrin?

If not for the lobster part of this whole thing, it might actually be okay. But alas...

The verdict
Don't try.

It really wasn't satisfying, and I threw it away before I was finished. Nice try, Healthy Choice. I'm sure I'll find something I enjoy from you guys soon enough.
